Couldn't post yesterday but back on track today. This weekend was crazy with all the work and primal activities. On Saturday I was sitting on the couch for about 15 minutes after putting Liam to bed for his afternoon nap and thought to myself, "Self, we shoudl go out and do something. We should be productive on this beautiful day and get some sunshine". Well I went out and started to trim the tree in the front yard b/c it's starting to get chaotic and low and behold I remembered why I loved climbing trees as a kid.
Our front yard is somethat on a hill so a ladder would not suffice. I got to climbing and lost track of time. I was trimming here and there and a little in-between. Good times. The wife decided ot join me and we cleared more limbs and worked on a few other trees that needed some attention. We both love the outdoors and the sun was shining so we just stayed outside. We set up the iphone to call us if the baby made any noise or woke up.
The tree has branches about 5-6 inches think in some locations and I started to do pull ups (10 sets of 3-5). I almost got to the top but they thin out a little so I can only go so high. I hope my neighbors don't think I'm crazy but I loved every second of it. We cut down a lot of branches and still have more to do towards the top but all in due time. Afterwards I realized that I may have over done just a bit. Sunday was hell with my neck barely being able to move and I had to be careful with most movements but the pain subsided and I am back to my normal self. With the back issues I've had I try to step back and make sur eI am nto putting myself in a bad spot that coudl lead to further injury but I just went for it and although I paid a heavy price it was worth it. It was like I was a kid again.
We finally went to the Farmer's Market and loaded up on fresh veggies, good meats and some olive oil. Lunches are back to my big ass salad with every veggie I can get my hands on and I am starting to feel it again. Good times.
